    No one cares that I collect, they see it as a hobby and respect it. People would when we were like 14, but I'm almost 21 now so all that picking and stuff over stupid issues has been grown out of

    Nobody knows that I collect, if anyone came in my room they would though! And people wouldnt dare making fun of me, because if they were ever in my room, that means they would be a good friend and I would have dirt on them :)

    I just still feel that the hobby is kind of stupid in concept. I mean spending rediculous amounts of money on pieces of cardboard! I remember when I used to spend all my money on cards and Id go to do things and have no money and people would ask where my money went, and I would say I never got any, and they would say, what about your paychecks!? , yeah well I learned to control my spending.

    I actually have a special savings in my room of almost $500 so far from any spare $$ from paychecks or cards or anything, that im saving for a motorcycle.

    Im not scared to tell my friends, its just that I know they wont understand it because none of them collect!

    I used to buy 1 box a week, that lasted like 2 weeks before I realized I was going broke! The store I bought from overchareged sooooo much but I just wanted to bust something so bad I would pay! $80 for 2004 Ultra box!!!!!!!!!!!!!! got nothing! only crap jerseys and inserts.

    Now I stay away from boxes except ones I need for sets, which are fairly cheap, at about $30 each, but then im still an idiot and buy like 4 boxes at once! lol
